Discussing Islam can be found at @islam_discuss on Twitter. The group holds fortnightly meetings at to educate people and discuss the religion of Islam. There is free cake, coffee and Koran at the meetings….
Rafay, the organiser, writes,
“We live in a world with many different religions and cultures. Islam is one of the largest religions in the world. In England 1 in 20 are Muslims and this regular event is being held so that anyone can come and ask questions to learn about Islam in a chilled out environment.
No questions are barred (about Islam and Muslims) so come and learn about Muslims and get answers to the questions that you’ve perhaps never been able to get access to.
The aim is to try and give you the spectrum of the Islamic view on issues and also what the general majority feel is the most appropriate way.
In addition, the group hope to deliver a comprehensive introductory course to Islam over a period of a few sessions.
I’d really love to see anyone who fancies a coffee and wants to discuss Islam with me, listen to some live Quran recitation, and hopefully make friends with others too!
I’d love to hear your views on recent events and how they impact on you and also whether knowing about Islam could be useful in your workplace.
It happens every fortnight on a Thursday in the gallery in Matthews Yard, 1 Surrey Street, Croydon near the Surrey Street Market.”
The next sessions are is on 28th September & then 12th October 2017.
